We did the 1.5 hour island tour with Kiwi Tuk Tuk. Was a great way to see the sights on the island and the stop to feed the eels was fun. The driver dropped us at Cable Bay vineyard for wine tasting and we made our own way from there to a fun filled day including lunch at Mudbrick vineyard 10 minutes away and kayaking near the ferry terminal.

An excellent service. At an arrival time of 9.30pm driver arrived within five minutes. He was informative, helpful and very pleasant. Pre booking is essential, but I would thoroughly recommend this service.

The initial communication snafu was negated by the quality of the tour experience, and the exceptional hospitality shown by Kevin. We were fortunate to have him available at the last minute.

Waiheke Island is gorgeous, and they have beaches, missed the wat areas but I see they are pretty neat

Well worth the money spent on the tickets. An excellent way to spend 2 hours of your day.
